LYF Water 8 Root:- Rooting a phone means removing default security restrictions on your phone. Security restrictions don’t allow third-party applications that change or delete operating systems files. Upon trying to install such apps while your phone is not rooted will result in a prompt error named “Application Blocked”. This security restriction saves your phone to be jacked or bricked by malicious applications available on the various community forums and websites.
I want to clarify here is that I am not against rooting an android phone, in fact, I have rooted my old phone, and its a very great experience to customize your phone according to the way you like but I am a bit concerned about the security loop that may at some point harm your privacy. Anyway, that’s the major risk of rooting a phone. If you are aware of the risk involved in rooting the android phone and still wish to root then follow the step by step methods below:-

How to Root LYF Water 8
Before following one of our methods to root your device please activate debugging mode in your smartphone.
1) Using Kingroot App
- Download and Install kingroot apk file by following the link (http://d.kingoapp.com/default/KingoRoot.apk).
- Once the app is downloaded on your smartphone tap on the app for installation.
- Before installation, the app required your permission because you are installing a custom app so when a pop-up prompt message will be appeared titled INSTALL BLOCKED just go to SETTINGS and tap on UNKNOWN SOURCE as shown in Figure.
- Now the app will begin to install, once installed open it and tap on button ONE CLICK ROOT.
- Once the process is finished your phone will be rooted. Be patient during the period of root because some can take up to 30 minutes to root and make sure your phone does not disconnect from the internet during rooting.
2) Through SRS Root
The second method to root a phone is quite bothersome because in this method you will need a USB cable and computer to root your smartphone.

- Once installed open software and connect your smartphone via USB Cable.

If you are looking for more apps like Kingroot then try these out – Framaroot and Towelroot. The method of installing each app will be the same as given in Kingoroot.
In case none of the root applications works on your phone which is really rare then you can try Systemless Root.
